9.044J Brain Mechanisms for Hearing and Speech


Class Info

An advanced subject covering anatomical, physiological, behavioral, and computational studies of the central nervous system relevant to speech and hearing. Students learn primarily by discussions of scientific papers on topics of current interest. Recent topics include neural circuits in the auditory brainstem, organization and processing in the auditory cortex, auditory reflexes and descending systems, functional imaging of the human auditory system, quantitive methods for relating neural responses to behavior, speech motor control, and cortical representation of language.

This class has HST.723 as a prerequisite.

9.044J will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. C. Brown, B. Delgutte, F. Guenther and J. Melcher.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
